Kellogg CEO John Bryant To Add Chairman Duties From July

John A. Bryant, president and chief executive officer of Kellogg Co., will also served as chairman of the board of the giant cereal maker.

The company announced Friday that Bryant was elected to begin that role effective 1 July, assuming the duties of current Chairman James M. Jenness. 

Jenness will remain on the company's board as a non-executive director.

"John has a deep understanding of all aspects of Kellogg Co.'s business," Jenness said in a press release, "and a clear vision of how we will deliver on our strategy and grow our business around the world. His election to chairman demonstrates the board's confidence in his leadership."

Bryant, who joined Kellogg in 1998 and was named president and CEO of the company in January of 2011, has been a member of the company's board of directors since July 2010.

He has held various senior leadership roles including chief financial officer, president of Kellogg North America, president of Kellogg International, and chief operating officer. He also serves on the board of directors of Catalyst, The Consumer Goods Forum, Food Marketing Institute and Grocery Manufacturers Association.

Byrant has an undergraduate degree from the Australian National University and an master's degree in business administration from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Jenness worked at Kellogg for 40 years, and has been a member of its board since 2000.
